Popular Italian bistro Remo’s Originale in Mount Edgecombe, Durban, recently underwent an exciting revamp, reopening with a new Pasta Factory addition.
The passionate Remo’s family opened up Remo’s Originale in 2007, with the sibling restaurants, Remo’s Maximilliano and Remo’s Fratelli Villaggio, arriving later on. What began as a simple café with a small menu has now become a bustling trattoria, A new menu has been introduced, but owner Renzo Scribante and his team have kept some of the old favourites.
One of the exciting additions to the restaurant is the Pasta Factory, which will make homemade penne, tagliatelle, linguine, fusilli and spaghetti daily. Customers will be able to take their fresh pasta home with them or order it off the menu and enjoy it at the restaurant.
Renzo says he aims to give customers a quality of pasta that is quite unsurpassed, and that meets the growing demand for high quality, fresh, locally produced food.
Diners can also look forward to fresh pastries and artisanal breads that will be brought in from Old Town Italy’s bakery every morning. This selection includes the much-loved Remo’s cronuts.
Come September, kids will be able to take part in pasta-making classes at the Pasta Factory. They will get to wear a mini chef’s apron and learn the basic foundation of Italian cookery while the adults enjoy an espresso and a bowl of ravioli.
